Composer and producer William Perry has played a major role in the revival of interest in silent films, both through his more than 100 silent film scores and through his Emmy Award-winning television series, The Silent Years, hosted by Orson Welles and Lillian Gish. This is the second volume dedicated to Perry's film music and offers a further view of his colourful and exuberant writing, including his new Silent Film Heroines song suite for mezzo-soprano and orchestra, celebrating eight legendary actresses of the silent cinema. Perry’s supremely melodic sense of period and style captures perfectly the romance, grandeur and humour of those entertaining days. This album includes several world premiere recordings.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
